Alpha is a way to explore life's most important questions in a safe, welcoming environment while enjoying a good meal and the fellowship of other searchers. Using a recently created video series and plenty of time for discussion, we will dive into the deep end of human life in a space where we can speak what we think and feel without fear of shame or judgement. Whatever your religion or background, consider yourself welcome to join us on Monday, September 17th at 6:30pm in the lower level of the St. Mary Church building at 182 Main Street, Newmarket NH for the first session.
